-159lb RB330N-x1-right hand!     *Notes: This was going to be my short-term goal.  I was shooting for closing it in a month.  So closing it tonight was good:)  Barely closed.  But still a good close. 

-152lb Atomgripz Narrow Quad Band-MISS-left hand     *Notes: About 1/8″ off.

-159lb RB330N-x1-right hand!     *Notes: Very solid close and a 2-second hold!  Wow it’s nice to be back in the saddle again and moving upwards instead of regressing or barely holding ground

-x1-right hand     *Notes: Missed my 2nd rep by a sliver.
